She’s Gonna Show You Crazy, maybe. Ahead of bachelorette party season, singer-songwriter Bebe Rexha is polishing one responsibility from her end, and that’s compiling the ultimate music playlist for upcoming festivities with her best friends.
The “I’m a Mess” hitmaker tells The Knot that her ideal bachelorette party is five-pronged: It consists of “friends, fun games, great food, great drinks—and most importantly, good music.”
Of course Rexha, 29, knows the formula especially after recently attending a bachelorette party in Cabo, Mexico. Following that excursion, the singer compiled her ultimate bachelorette party playlist for The Knot on Spotify–just in time for summertime festivities. (Yes, break out the pool floats!) “We hired a yacht for the day and went along the coast,” she reminisces. “We had some drinks, good music and enjoyed the sunshine.”
Currently, Rexha is playing “Taki Taki” by DJ Snake featuring Selena Gomez, Ozuna and Cardi B. “It’s a great song, and it makes me want to dance.” Another oldie-but-goodie for Rexha’s crew is “We Found Love” by Rihanna featuring Calvin Harris. And then there’s Rexha’s own music, which has been played on repeat at bachelorette parties across the country. The Brooklyn-born singer chooses “Last Hurrah” as the perfect track to play before a night out in Miami, New York City, Nashville or other bachelorette party hotspots across the country.
“The song is about having a final party and doing everything one last time,” she muses. “I would want my friends just to have the time of their lives and not worry about tomorrow.”
For bridesmaids and other close friends who will be hitting the bachelorette party circuit this year: Rexha says to bring one attitude. “I am big on energies,” she muses. “And it’s not necessarily a type of energy I can explain, but it’s just a good vibe and wanting to have fun—enjoying the moment.”
While Rexha doesn’t exactly have a bachelorette party of her own on the horizon, she tells us that her ideal getaway with girlfriends, best friends and all would be in Tuscany, Italy. “I would rent a big villa for all my best friends, hire a chef to cook us the best Italian food,” she says. “And be in the middle of nowhere, so we could play our music loud and until any time we wanted to.”
